"Via Mazzini northwards" Via Mazzini Tip by JLBG

Via Mazzini, Verona: 11 reviews and 11 photos


The importance of Via Mazzini arises from the fact that it is the shortest way to walk from Piazza Delle Erbe, the old center of the city to Piazza Brà, which is now the most popular part of Verona. It was named Via Mazzini in 1907 but before that, it had been colloquially called Via Nuova (New Street) as its first part (north) was drown in 1391 after Gian Galeazzo Visconti, squire of Verona decided to demolish a few houses.
